Watch out, Wilf! by Jan Fearnley


Watch out, Wilf! by Jan Fearnley

Wilf is full of fun and always busy. He loves to run and climb and jump about. Wilf is a good boy, but sometimes he is too busy to listen to his mum shouting, and the results are just disastrous.


The illustration of Wilf and his amphibious friend playing bouncy forgs is reminiscent of the Morecambe and Wise dance... Nursery World; Award-winning illustrator Jan Fearnley has created a loveable and cheeky character in Wilf... There are some great phrases to repeat together, and the story is warm-hearted and entertaining. INK magazine
